Today's encouragement comes from Micah 4:5, where we read these words:
"For all people walk each in the name of his god, but we will walk in the name of the LORD our God forever and ever."
Many idolaters worship their false gods with more fervor, intentional-ity and devotion, than the children of light worship the True God. Let this not be the case with any of us. May we do all we can to assure that the God of grace and glory receives more homage (in our own realms), than Satan could ever dream of.
After all: what is the devil's "reward" to his followers? Misery in this world, and an eternity in flames. What does the True God do for His sincere churchmen? He gives us everything we need (and *really* want) in this world, as well as in the one to come.
